F-4 fighter jet in the White Sands Missile Range museum rocket garden, New Mexico. No, I don’t know why there is an airplane in the midst of a collection of rockets and missiles.

Shot with the Nikon D70s and the 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom at 70mm, ISO 400, f/7.1, shutter 1/200 sec. Exposure, contrast, saturation, highlights, shadows, and color adjustments in Aperture.


  1. Maybe it was a chase plane or spotter for missiles as they came down?

  2. Seems plausible. There were a couple of other aircraft in the garden that had obviously been used in operations on the range, so it makes sense that this one would be too.
